PLANTING OF BLUEBERRIES

You plant blueberries on a distance of 0.75 to 1.50 mtr. on airy soil that is peaty.
Peatlands: here blueberries can be planted without soil improvement.
Sandy soils: here you need to mix the soil with garden peat or peat moss.
Clay soils: if the clay soil is not too heavy, mix it with sharp sand and peat.
In case of heavy clay soil it is better to put the plants in trays.
